Setting up a business in Singapore by a Non-Resident

How to set up a business in Singapore

Setting up a business in Singapore


If you are residing outside Singapore and want to set up a business (sole proprietorship or partnership) in Singapore, the best approach is to appoint a Permanent Resident or a Singapore nationality to manage your business operations. You will need to contact a company secretarial service provider to appoint a resident as an authorized representative of your biz. The fees for this service vary from 60 to 300 SGD.
